The DiorBlush formula is supposed to be a pigmented and blendable powder blush. The texture, while blendable on the skin, was powdery and looked somewhat powdery/dry against my skin (normal at the moment). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage. There seemed to be the slightest bit of shimmer in the product, but it read as a traditional matte finish applied. On me, the blush started to fade after six and a half hours of wear.

Dior Glowing Nude Diorskin Nude Air Illuminating Powder

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

As I mentioned, the formula is comparable to products like NARS Dual Intensity, MAC Extra Dimension, Estee Lauder Gelee, and so forth. The powder has a smooth, blendable consistency that isn’t too firm or too soft, and it has a “dryness” to it that I feel but doesn’t appear on the skin (it’s not powdery or caky on). The amount and size of shimmer is just shy of emphasizing pores on me, but it may emphasize pores on someone who feels like they have larger pores–it is a more metallic one–though it can always be applied with a fan brush for less impact. The color lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

This has a similar formula to products like NARS Dual Intensity, MAC Extra Dimension, Estee Lauder Gelee, and so forth. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and very blendable without being too soft or too firm. The texture feels a little dry, but it doesn’t look dry or powdery on the skin. It doesn’t emphasize pores on my skin, though if you apply more heavily and feel like you have larger pores, then there’s enough shimmer in it that it could be a possibility. I liked that while it was very light, it didn’t have a really strong, white powdery base, so it didn’t look chalky on my skin tone (and sometimes these types of colors can), which makes it more versatile for a greater number of skin tones. I think that those with cooler undertones, the pink tone/tint in this may be more noticeable as well. The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading on me. This product also came with a mini kabuki brush, which is okay, but I did personally prefer a less dense brush for application (as well as a softer one). This is one of the better highlighters Dior has released in the last few years.

ColourPop Santos & New Lowes Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden bronze.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, rosy undertones and a pearly sheen. There’s a plum/rosy vibe I get from it that makes it appear less bronzy, especially as I blended it out (even against my warmer undertones). The texture was smooth, soft, and blendable without being too dry or too emollient. It had buildable color coverage from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how you applied it (which is how it is described). This shade wore well for ten hours before fading. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunkissed Glow (P, $48.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Paranoid (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

ColourPop New Lowes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned berry.” It’s a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with a natural finish that wasn’t shimmery but not totally matte. The more this is blended out (and sheered out), the more it appears as a stain. The texture was smooth, thin, and a little drier compared to the more shimmery shades in the cheek color range. It was fairly blendable, but it wasn’t quite as effortless as Santos. It wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. NARS Chic (LE, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar).

I reviewed this previously when it was released in the Champagne Glow palette, but I had noticed (or felt) that the consistency of the powders in the palette was slightly drier compared to the permanent versions I had (of the existing two shades in the palette). I know that a lot of readers have been eagerly awaiting Pearl in powder form, so I figured I would check it out. I do think the standalone version is smoother, but the standalone version is also slightly more shimmery (just slightly, though!). The texture was still softer than the majority of the Pressed range, and worth noting, it is 0.25 oz. compared to the 0.28 oz. size of the other shades. It can emphasize pores if I am not careful with the application–the palette version was more forgiving in that aspect. On me, the highlighter wore for eight hours.

Too Faced Warm Glow Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo

Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow
Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow

Too Faced Warm Glow Candelight Glow ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new addition to the Candlelight Glow range (the other is Rosy Glow) in a warmer tone; Too Faced also indicates that they’ve changed the formula (“We’ve revamped our bestselling highlighter by popular demand”)–I didn’t notice that bit until writing up this review, so I’ll be looking to purchase Rosy Glow in the future as well. The formula is supposed to have sheer coverage that highlights the skin. The duo is nice; they coordinate together and both have a similar warmth, and the wear is good, while the formula is consistent with how it is described. I wish there was a little more contrast between the two, because it would make the product more versatile overall (because you could always mix to lighten the darker one); on my skin tone, they look similar on, though fairer skin tones and cooler skin tones should see a stronger difference applied.

Warm Glow (Left) is a light, golden champagne with warm undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer. The finish reads more shimmery than just a glowing, luminous one, but it isn’t frosty or metallic. It adds glow and shimmer without emphasizing pores. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to apply, while the coverage is sheer. It is buildable to semi-sheer with a few layers. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours. Ciate Starburst (P, $29.00) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Crystal Glare (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Now's the Time (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00)(95% similar). NYX Moonbeam (P, $6.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Glow (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Perilune (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Lunch Money (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). The Estee Edit Snowlit (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Gypsum (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Colour Pop Flexitarian (LE, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Albatross (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). NARS Watch Me (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Moonstone (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Champagne (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Double-Gleam (P, $33.00) is lighter (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Warm Glow (Right) is a light-medium, golden peach with warm, orange-y undertones and a frosted finish. The texture on this shade was a little drier compared to the left side, though not so dry that it read that way on the skin. Once blended and buffed into the skin, it also produces a strong sheen that just slightly emphasizes pores for me. This shade also lasted for eight hours before fading. Tom Ford Beauty Solar Exposure (Highlighter) (LE, $60.00) is lighter (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Flush (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Moonlight (P, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Tribulation (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Jubilant (21) (P, $14.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Sun Light (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Sweet Peach Illuminator (P, ) is darker (85% similar). MAC Show Gold (P, $33.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $33.00) is darker (85% similar). NYX Narcissistic (P, $9.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Cle de Peau Sand Beige (13) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar).
